    I have a 3 year old toy Yorkie and she's cute as a button. But something I've noticed lately is that the wiskars on the right side of her face (only 2 or 3 of them like this) are about 8 inches long. However, the wiskars on the right side of her face are only an inch long.

    Now I know they are used for balance, so I don't want to cut them. Plus they don't seem to be bothering her. I'm just curious if this is normal?

    Thanks!

    It is not uncommon for the whiskers to vary from side to side in both quantity and length.

    However, that is a considerable difference. 8" on a toy yorkie? They actually might need to be trimmed a bit.
    Ask your vet? Did a groomer whack the other side?
